Trump Signs Executive Order Aimed at Improving Child Welfare System

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday directed at improving the child welfare system and decreasing the amount of time kids spend in foster care before they are permanently placed with families. The order reportedly aims to give care providers access to better funding, tools for education, and ways of dealing with trauma. Only three sources rated as either left or center— the ACLU, the Hill and the Associated Press — covered the order, while it received more frequent coverage from right-rated outlets. The ACLU took issue with the order's focus on increased involvement of "faith-based" agencies, saying that state governments should know "religion is not a license to discriminate." Coverage from right-rated sources framed the order more as a well-intentioned effort from the Trump administration.
